  1. Better Wake-On-LAN implementation.

    Have the K1000 send the WOL request to an Agent (on a PC that is already awake of course) on the same VLAN as the PC that you want to wake up. I need to be able to send WOL packets through VPN Tunnels and across VLANs. This would be a life saver!

    • Add Wake on LAN option to K1000 Device Inventory

      It would be wonderful it a WOL option would be added the K1000: Computer Inventory listing. If I see that a machine is offline I can't just click on it and send a WOL. If that was a button next to the "Force Inventory Update" or even under the "Choose Action" maybe "Choose Action --> Machine Options --> "Send WOL" That would allow the user to select multiple machines. It would save the user time from having to go to the K2000 --> Systems --> K1000 Inventory --> Labels --> Find the machine you want. Thanks.

        Development work has begun for this to be included in the next major release.

      • Add wake on LAN to Patch schedules.

        Add a check box to add Wake-On-LAN for any computers that are part of a patch schedule. This way you do not need to define WOL schedules and worry about them being in sync with your patch schedules.

        • Wake on Lan to be Not Dependent on ARP Cache

          Would like the K1000's Wake-On-Lan implementation to function more like a program called Spiceworks. The appliance currently dependent on the ARP cache. KACE WOL is dependent on the ARP cache of the network gateway device (i.e. router) to determine where to send the Wake-On-Lan packets to. The concern is if a machine is turned off for an extended amount of time (e.g. days), the ARP cache would be cleared on his network gateway devices, and the K1000 won't be able to wake up the device.

            • Schedule WOL for Specific MAC Address

              I have laptops that connect using WIFI during the day. I want to schedule a WOL for these devices during the night on their Ethernet connections. For scheduling WOL, Kace is remembering the last connected MAC address. So I have problems getting WOL to work consistently. I would like to schedule WOL for specific MAC addresses.

              • Hold WOL schedules for holidays

                It would be great to be able to 'hold' a scheduled WOL event for a holiday. We use many WOL schedules to accomodate different work hours and we need to turn them all off prior to every holiday and then re-schedule them after the holiday. Placing them on hold and then releasing them from hold would be faster and easier.

                • wake on lan

                  Add wake up button to computer "My computer" tab that is shown to users on login. This could then send the magic packet to the users computer.

                  This would be useful for off-hours remote waking of the computer for users who VPN to the network and then use RDP to access their work computers from a personal another work computer.

                  • Class A Network Wake On Lan Support

                    We have the problem that our K1000 is not wake the machines in our Class A 10.0.0.0 Client Network.
                    When sending the magic paket it leaves out 10.255.255.255 Broadcast Address and only hopes through */16 to */32 Broadcast Addresses. Unicast is not possible due to Network Configuration

                    • Ability to change port used for Wake-On-Lan

                      In my environment, some of our network gear is unable to pass port 7 through for wake-on-lan which therefore means we can't remotely wake our systems in some areas with KACE. It would be exceedingly helpful if we could specify what port could be used for wake-on-lan so we can use a port that is already being forwarded (either on a case by case basis or as a global config change).

                      • Add the ability to specify the password for WoL for SecureOn enabled devices

                        The actual implementation of the WoL allows to specify a password for the secureOn enabled devices of 6 bytes.
                        We'd provide the ability to specify that password to the user for these kind of devices.

                        • Wake-On-LAN (WOL) schedules need to have a "Weekdays Only" option

                          There needs to be an option like "Weekdays Only" for scheduling WOL. Currently we have to make five schedules with five separate labels to accommodate a weekday schedule at 6 AM and another set of 5 for 7AM and so on.

                          • wake on lan

                            We need the ability to push wake on lan to the hard wired ethernet port of a device every time. Not just the last adapter it checked in with. We want to be able to update laptop carts at night but when they check in on wireless during the day the wol packet goes to the wireless nic instead of the hardwired connection which makes scheduling wol processes at night useless. If the wol packet would blast to all nics or just the hardwired one we would be able to successfully schedule them to update.
